I'm sold!

Caught 5 wild cutthroats (6"-9") today during my lunch break with my new 12' Iwana rod. This was the first time I used the rod and am using the braided line. The rod and line are really nice to use, performing well even in a stiff wind - even if my casts were often going backwards! I am blessed to work next to the beautiful McKenzie River. I can’t wait to use it on small creeks!

Welcome to the forum GW. Good to have you here. I've found I catch more fish using tenkara and it looks like you will too. 5 fish during lunch? Nice!
